2024: Pastors, Pranks and Prophecies
By Simeon Olayiwola
Decidedly, the last few days of a year are inundated with activities of Nigerian Pastors either to “outsmart” some unsuspecting “faithful” of their hard earned money or to reel out some abracadabra nicknamed PROPHECIES.
HEAVY prayers are prescribed alongside undiluted fasting and abstinence which eventually culminate in DONATING the almighty January salary otherwise known as FIRST FRUIT.
The other side of their activities is the tradition of reading out prophecies. According to them, these prophecies emanate from the encounter they have with God!
Let me look at the prophecies. A careful look at the Nigerian situation is enough to predict what will happen in the coming year so, anyone coming up into the space to vomit prophecy should not be taken with seriousness. Political analysts are doing excellently in this regard.
What baffles me is that most of these Pastors go about reading litany of prophecies! So, God is dictating to them, right? Where do they position their pen and paper at the time of this popular encounter with God? Sincerely, many things are not right here. Bet9ja and Xbet boys are doing great in the forecast and predictions and their activities are real. I think they could be taken more seriously.
As for the donation of January salary in order to secure UNMERITED FAVOUR, MIRACLES, etc…. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I tell you most solemnly, MONEY MAKING IS SCIENTIFIC, IT IS NEVER THE OTHER WAY ROUND.
If you want to eat and prosper in 2024, work, pray, calculate and be reasonable. Do not be scammed.
Man’s happiness depends on the way he handles sorrows and pains. When you dedicate yourself to hard work, you will surely make it.
